Things I saw in the woods today, part 21

Lots of pretty white flowers in the woods today. The smell of hawthorn can be overpowering- a bit like walking into a room full of raw eggs. The sulphurous smell is not that pleasant. In the past I have tried to make liqueur from the berries- it was pretty astringent, enough to make the teeth melt. Bees love the flowers though!
